How has Toastmasters benefited you?
We recently asked our members for examples on how Toastmasters benefited them in their work or everyday lives. Here are some of their responses:
“I realised I had to join Toastmasters after I fluffed a big presentation in front of a national group. Just last week I had to front a major customer at 3 hours-notice. I was able to do so and sold the project to the customer in 45 minutes.”
“I definitely feel Toastmasters has helped me when I need to return an item back to the shop. I use the Praise, Improvement, Praise structure I learned at TM in dealing with sales staff and I always receive excellent service as a result.”
“I used to always be a nervous wreck before I joined Toastmasters. It’s bought me out of my shell, taught me different ways to speak, to use eye contact and the praise/improvement/praise has helped with my marriage.”
“Just recently I had to conduct a video interview on the spot for one of my organisations. Thanks to TM I was able to pull it off without any breaks in the interview and it didn’t require a second take.”
“As a person who does a lot of public speaking I feel that TM certainly helps. I am surprised at how many professional speakers deliver in a monotone way with no vocal variety. TM would greatly assist their public speaking!”
So how will Toastmasters help you? Come along to a meeting and find out. And be prepared for plenty of laughs along the way.
